What is ladies’ room?
LADIES’ ROOM is a tiny IRL space with a larger URL reach. We are building a museum-quality exhibition program and are currently planning ancillary public programs.
Why was ladies’ room created?
Curator/art consultant Annie Wharton conducted more than 4,000 studio visits with artists in Los Angeles, a city rich with artistic talent yet lacking in opportunities for women artists. More than 5,000 artists were tallied in the top contemporary art galleries worldwide and 70% are male. 69% of solo exhibitions in museums are given to male artists, and when 2 million art auction sales at auction were tallied, it was found that female artists earn an average of 47% of male artists earnings (Research findings courtesy of Renée Adams and Micol Hebron). Ladies’ Room was created to address gender inequities in the contemporary art world by providing an exhibition program reserved for those who identify as female (femme/GNC/non-binary/trans- and cis- women). We know the time is now for this work and we are ready for it. Join us!
